Saturday of the first week of Advent :6/12/14
**********************************************

Gospel:         Matthew 9:

Jesus said
As you go, proclaim the good news,   ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near’ .’

Reflection: God is Near

near to God  Advent means God is close, God is near, God is on the way.
People and places    are environments in which we find God.
There can be a density of the divine in some holy places and in some holy        people, of all nations and all faiths.
Christmas is a season of the density and the closeness of God.
God is on his journey to us in Mary and the son she is carrying.

Mary , Elizabeth, Two cousins with child.

Mary , Elizabeth, Two cousins with child.

Is our journey too fast, too complicated, too rushed so that we miss God on God’s journey? We can pass like planes in the night sky, commuters on a bus, people on a traffic island. Something new can happen for each of us each Christmas, because God makes the journey anew in the simplest way we know — a mother and her child. If only we take the time.

 


work for justicePrayer:

May I bring forth the kingdom of justice,
may I bring forth the kingdom of peace,
may I bring forth the kingdom of God.

Please:

Offer a prayer today for those who work for peace,
states-people, church-people, community activists,  politicians, medical and social people in war torn places across the globe.
